Republican California Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher is running for Mayor of San Diego. Yesterday he put out a web video announcing he is quitting the GOP to run as an independent, saying both parties are more worried about perpetuating power than actually solving problems. When he mentions his far right Republican opponent, he's talking about City Councilman Carl DeMaio - a gay man. The other Republican in the race (who doesn't get mentioned) is District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis - a lesbian.
